I don’t often envy our friends over in the UK and today is no different as Goldsmiths, University of London has decided to ban the sale of all beef on campus, according to the BBC. Frances Corner, the school’s new head, said “Though I have only just arrived at Goldsmiths, it is immediately obvious that our staff and students care passionately about the future of our environment and that they are determined to help deliver the step [sic] change we need to cut our carbon footprint drastically and as quickly as possible.”
Now, Breitbart’s James Delingpole says that Goldsmiths’ decision comes after a BBC environment analyst said that UN scientists claim in private that the West can’t keep over-consuming meat. But if that were the case, you would think the scientists would have put that in their report. However, according to Telegraph journalist Charles Moore, the actual report apparently talks about a diverse diet, instead of outright cutting a certain food item.
And it shouldn’t surprise you to find out to find out that blogger Paul Homewood noted that Frances Corner, the head of the school, traveled to Beijing just last fall for a fashion exhibit.
That’s a pretty long flight, but a left-wing activist not practicing what she preaches? Color me shocked.
